it about even. i saw a cbs poll that had him winning 50 to 30 with undecided voters. i don't try to spend a lot of time looking at polls with 25 days out, but i was very, very proud of what he did and how he comported himself on the stage last night. to communicate directly to the american people about what it is that he and president obama want to do, and quite frankly, drawing a very stark contrast with what ryan and romney would do. >> some people have called your father disrespectful by the way he treated paul ryan last night, that he was like sort of an older bully bashing a little guy around. what did you think? your dad's always been a fairly live wire when it comes to public speaking. i found him thoroughly entertaining, i have to say. do you think he overstepped the mark occasionally? does he feel that? >> not at all. i didn't feel that way at all. look, you grew up following and covering parliamentary system. this was mild from the things relative to what you've covered. >> that is true. >> in great britain. and so look, my dad says what he means, means what he says. he did it w
. as for undecided voters, the cnn poll was of all viewers, but cbs did a poll specifically of undecided voters who were watching the debate, and joe biden won overwhelmingly, 53% to 35% something in that range. those are the voters that people are looking for right now. they clearly said joe biden was the winner. >> one of our polls cnn/orc poll, they said who was more likable. and it was paul ryan who won by a decent margin. almost 10% margin there. also, who performed better at the debate? that looked like a tie from our perspective. >> that was a poll of all the viewers. it was as you indicated earlier slighted weighted towards republicans. >> this was debate watchers. >> right. but the cbs poll was debate watchers who were undecided going in. and they gave the clear victory. >> let's talk a little bit about paul ryan on tax cuts. i want to play a little bit from the debate. >> sure. >>> there aren't enough rich people in small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch o
. >> this special airs on cbs and with a guest list like that, you have to know this is quite an event and a really good show. >> i'm looking forward to it. this movie coming out this weekend and our producers are really referring to this one as the ben affleck one, you know, the one with the beard. >> ben affleck has the beard. this has everyone here at the l.a. bureau at cnn buzzing. some may say it's early for oscar buzz, but we're talking about "argo." this is generating that kind of chatter from critics. the film is based on the true events surrounding the u.s. hostage crisis that resulted from the 1979 embassy attack in iran during that country's chaotic revolution. now, aflic who also directs the film portrays tony mendez, a cia a specialist credited with devising a down right crazy plan to say the least to rescue the hostages. this plan, sneak into iran as a movie producer on a location scout and rendezvous with the hostages and smuggle them out disguised as a film crew and, guess what, it worked. now, we actually spoke to the real tony mendez last week. he says the movie is acaerate in spi
't think abc and nbc and cbs are activist organizations for liberal causes. i think fox looks at those organizations and they're sort of an autoimmune disease against that. >> i see you make more than a billion dollars a year. >> what were these television talkers trying to accomplish? joining me here, are you going go out on a limb and declare a winner? >> this sounds like a copout but i think they both came out ahead. they both, think, very much held their own and proved that they're very good at this. >> this was very heavily promoted. >> yes. >> did it live up to the hype? when they were standing up at the podiums, it felt a little strange to me. i didn't think either one of them held up like they do in their program sthoos they like each other, so they're not out to ruin each other's reputation, but the reality is it's ral rather fairly substantive might be the wrong word but serious. >> if you came in looking for a lot of laughs, you might -- >> they were a little funny, stewart adjusting the height of his seat. i had the same reaction. for the first 15, 30 minutes i kept expecti
of economic progress out of washington on congress. a recent cbs/"new york times" poll found congress has an approval rating of 16%. if the president wins, with his legacy on the line, we talked about this a little bit in the last segment. what honestly can he do? he's tried a lot of things, he's tried different chiefs of staff, different approaches to congress. this is really -- what's the special sauce? how does he get back and say we have to go and we have to change things for america? >> there are many ingredients to a special sauce. some of them are personal. the president will have to do a better job, building better relations with republicans. the republicans leaders will have to do a better job of accommodating and trying to actually do business with the president. welcome to the world of washington. to get deals done you have to give to get. the president has to give some things up to get some deals. if john boehner is back as the speaker of house and mitch mcconnell whether the republican leader or the majority lead of the united states senate, these are guys who for years have
to a minimum. >> elise, let me stop you there because i'm going to play what andy wood said to cbs news. >> sure. >> -- for enhanced or continued security that we had, that we had known, that we had come to live with and work with there for the environment we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> $64,000 question, of course, is so why would requests like that go unheard and unanswered? >> that's the big question. when asked who said that, he said the state department superiors. and there is one woman testifying today, charlene lamb, deputy assistant secretary, where it seemed that the buck stopped with her and she was the one that said, you know, need to keep the security to a minimum. soledad, what officials are saying is, listen, there was security improvements made to the consulate, to the office, over the last several months, leading up to the attack because there were other attacks on the consulate. there was this ied attack and other western targets. but what they're saying is the kind of assault that they suffered that night, this 40 armed gunmen, outmanning everybody there,
he said to cbs news. he's going to be testifying this morning at that oversight hearing. let's take a listen. >> -- or continued security that we had, that we had known, that we had come to live with and work with there for the enviroent we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> and, zoraida, when asked who felt that you needed to do more with less, he said the state department superiors. and we also hear that eric who will also be testifying today, a former regional top security officer in libya, had repeatedly asked the state department for additional personnel for benghazi, received no response several times, zoraida. this is going to be a key focus, i believe, at that hearing this morning. >> so many concerning details we're hearing. we appreciate it, elise. >>> today's libya attack hearing begins at noon eastern time the keep it tuned to cnn and cnn.com for the latest throughout the day. >>> call it a buckeye bounce, mitt romney making big gains in ohio after the first debate. this is a new cnn/orc poll. the president's lead is shrinking there within the margin of error. 18
training, so i left my full-time position and gained an internship at cbs, and that was a great gateway, so the internship plus the mba, i was able to fortunately land. looking more at the marketing and helping with making strategic decisions. >> the switch took time and money. $80,000 in student loans. >> is it worth the investment to retrain in your career and take on all those student loans? >> yes. it's worth the investment. >> the degree alone doesn't open doors. he also worked with a job coach. >> we really worked with him on interviewing and networking, because, let's face it, as a career changer, his resume speaks to what he did before. in order to get people to think of him in a different way, he had to talk to people about his story. >> reporter: not all career switches require an mba and $80,000 in debt. consider community colleges or free on-line courses in your new field. >> counter intuitively a career changer can't seem like a career changer. people will ask about experience if you are not demonstrating enough expert sees or a skillset. you have to show the people who are alr
at the polling. cnn poll had ryan winning, cbs poll had biden winning. biden was effective when he got back to framing this as a choice of who is on your side. ryan, in the answer on libya was effective when he could get back to whether the past four years justify another four years. those are each strong arguments for those remaining undecided voters, which is why i think the debate, above all, shows we may be headed for the third photo finish presidential election out of the last four. >> jessica, if you listen to the reaction, it appears from joe biden's performance, i think people are saying, you know, joe biden, after that phone call with president obama, his first words were you're welcome. how is the administration dealing with this? do they see it the same way? >> reporter: he went into this happy to be able to defend the honor of the white house and this administration and will probably come out of it feeling he did that. and the administration and the campaign were thrild with the performance last night for the very reasons ron outlined. especially because biden forcefully made th
the opposite. there's a cbs poll which shows biden won by 11%. that's the kind of polling you will see. ryan did fine. i think he held his own. i think that he, you know, watched with the expertise, and the gravitas of joe biden, and the energy of joe biden, i do in the think >> and the age of joe biden. not easy to debate your father. >> for a vice presidential nominee the bar is to prove you could be president if you had to. any doubt that paul ryan met that? >> yeah, i doubt it. i don't want him to be president. i'd be scared if he was president. >> i think you're in the mine or -- a lot this morning are saying he looked like he could hale it. >> you know, when it came to foreign policy he looked very robotic, i thought. i thought that, you know, he looked like he had a good training. >> when you listen to his answers, he splay looked robotic, but when you listen to the substance of his answers. >> i think there were a lot of questions he didn't answer. i think there were a lot of moments where he just kind of, you know, shrugged his shoulders. >> ana, let me ask you, martha, pushed paul
there, though a doifrnt poll from cbs shows obama still leading there. the "wall street journal" poll, mitt romney trails in florida and is down six in ohio. a quinnipiac poll shows him up three points in three other states. cnn's paul steinhauser is at the site in danville, kentucky with an inside look. >> reporter: 14 hours from now behind me on this stage, the only vice presidential debate in the campaign. they've been behind closed doors getting ready for this big showdown. the republican running mate got here to kentucky yesterday. before he arrived, he played a little bit of the expectations game, kind of lowering the bar for himself. >> joe biden has been on this stage many times before. it's my first time. sure it's a nervous situation because joe biden is one of the most experienced debaters we have in modern politics. >> as for vice president joe biden, he gets here later today. how is it going to work? to tell us. frank farencoff. >> it will be similar to the start of the colorado debate except that these two will be seated at a table. the vice president will be on the left
university cbs news, "new york times" poll in colorado. mitt romney, 67% strong leadership qualities. barack obama 54%. let's go to virginia, 64% for mitt romney, 62% for barack obama. and paul in wisconsin 65% for mitt romney, 59% for barack obama. so clearly in those three battleground states they think romney has stronger leadership qualities than the president does. >> well, that's what comes from having a strong debate. but notice this was a gain for romney much more than a loss for president obama. i think that's really unusual about this last debate. romney helped himself, there's no doubt. he eroded the president's lead, but he didn't really erode the president's position. in other words, people still like the president, they support the president. if the election were held today, he'd still win. it would be a lot closer than a week or two ago. these internals do matter. and it's wise i think we're highlighting strong leader. look at things like cares about me, for the middle class. let's see if what president clinton was saying a minute ago starts to catch on. if people start to bel
